Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, Guide us still from day to day, 

To our Alma Mater, S.S.C. Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 

Thine honor, pride and eminence, Help us know that life, short or long, 

We raise in prayerful reverence. Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 

Refrain 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.C. is found. 
We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 
In our hearts we'll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S.S.C. ~J. Randolph Fisher

Observing the centuries-old convocation procedures, each Marshal in the Savannah State College Academic Procession carries an official 
mace which is indicative of the power, dignity, and magisterium vested in the College. The mace is a club-shaped staff which originated in the 
Middle Ages as a weapon. Eventually, it gained a ceremonial character and is presently employed most often by legislative forums and academic 
enterprises. 

The official mace of Savannah State College was designed and made from mahogany wood by Dr. Ernest S. Brown, Associate Professor 
Emeritus of Civil Engineering Technology. Dr. Lester B. Johnson, Jr., former Head of the Department of Engineering Technology, designed and 
built the Mace Stand. 

The College motto is "Lux Et Veritas" ("Light and Truth"). 



Acafomic (ftosiumes 



Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval Universities to distinguish their schools from 
the lay person in dress at a time when everybody wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable 
system of academic apparel a half century ago, it seemed best to agree on some definite system which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire 
has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress has the same design for all degrees; black and square-shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. 
However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates the field of study for which the degree was granted, the golf tassel being worn by doctors 
or by presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred on the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's 
degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn closed. The gown for the master's degrees, worn open or closed has an oblong sleeve, open 
at the wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part of its oblong shape is square cut and the front 
part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. 
The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the academic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge 
or adornment with an oval opening and worn down the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also 
the college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and the shape of the hood make this distinction. The 
bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made 
with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their degrees may be, and entitled to wear doctor's 
gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods maybe only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them by 
the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer to wear a costume similar to that worn by 
the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and tassels of caps, the color associated with different 
subjects as prescribed by the revised American Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White Oratory (Speech) Silver Gray 

Business Drab Philosophy Dark Blue 

Economics Copper Physical Education Sage Green 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Law Purple Science Golden Yellow 

Library Science Lemon Social Work Citron 

Music Pink Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue background to represent school colors. A faculty 
member wears the color of his alma mater.
